Take a look at my medieval game room with a custom made gaming table and chairs. I attempted to make every detail of the room authentic 13th century in the style of a tavern. You will notice that there isn't anything modern age in the room. there isn't even any modern nails that show in the wood paneling on the walls, ceiling, or floors.
NOTE: If you have the time be sure to scroll to page 6 and 7 of the photographers pictures to see the two SECRET levels inside the table. You will see two epic dungeon builds; one dungeon build complete with traps and monsters, and one outdoor terrain build with village, lake, river, and and epic level dracolich.
Here's the direct link to the photographer's pictures:
Please post your thoughts!
Are you looking for a room mate? I don't take up much space. I can just curl up under that table with a mug of ale.
Asphere (cool name) LOL literally! Hmmm, a few hundred a month rent is real tempting, ahh but the wood floor wouldn't be very comfortable I'm sure, and all the sloshed beer and brawling in my tavern probably wouldn't work either! Wait a minute! I don't allow drinking alcohol in my tavern, so maybe we should work something out! ;)
Very cool! Can I ask where you had the table made? I've been looking into having something like that done myself.
Sure you can ask! The table and chairs were made by:http://www.geoghagan.net/
If there is anyone else that wants to know where I got anything in the photos let me know!
Looks great. Too much wood of my taste but it definitely looks good.
@Flamehawke To answer your question about the table construction if you look about in this post or read any of the feature articles in this post you will see the Master Wood Smith's website listed. I also answer some of the gaming table questions below the feature story articles.
If you still have question then by all means ask them!
Outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail. You, my friend, are an inspiration to gamers everywhere, and lend hope to the dream of fully escaping the mundane world to be immersed in the realms of the fantastic.
. . . Did I overdo it? In all seriousness . . . Wow. I see that word a lot in this thread, and it is certainly apt. I'll be snatching several ideas once I get a permanent base of operations. Only so much you can do with an apartment, you know?
Again, thanks for sharing this. Bravo.
Again, awesome. I am going to point all my friends to this thread.
You've definitely got the tavern feel down, bravo! :)
Just out of curiosity, how comfortable are those chairs for prolonged gaming sessions? I have the feeling my back would be quite angry with me by night's end.

He is a very reputable and honest custom maker of resin products. He does a lot of neat products like roofs for Dwarven Forge buildings. He's expensive but worth the investment.
The buildings are from Miniature Building Authority. You can visit their website here:
I don't know what your referring to about the flames around the sword? What picture are you referring to?
Every item in my Medieval Tavern Room is the best quality I could find, from the used weapons on the wall (all hand forged in the same smithing process as in the 13th century), gaming supplies, furniture, etc. I didn't want to design a great gaming room but have crappy miniatures to play with. I decided I would rather wait and buy the best gaming items I could find to help compliment the room.
The chair design was an important part of the construction of the table and chair. I have significant back and neck trouble, plus we know a gaming session could easily be 4+ hours long. This is why (see photographer photo website not feature stories):
I made cushions for the chairs and a specific design to make them very comfortable . Their a about a 5 degree tilt to the back of the chair to make it comfortable. So far, nobody has complained that the chairs are uncomfortable.
Thank you Stockvilliain.
Dot. Work Comp not letting me see the pics...
Ok try this recent article written on my room. At the bottom of the article in the last picture is a link embedded to my Flickr account. There are many more really cool pics with explanations as well.
This inspires me! I've been looking for some inspiration to get me back into woodwork. I think a custom gaming table may be my first comeback project.
But, this is fantastic! Truly wish I could play here, at least once. You don't happen to live in Southern California do you?
How long did it take you to build those dungeons??

This was my first major dungeon and outdoor terrain build. I'm thinking about 10-12 hours but nothing in the dungeon is statted out; the monsters, traps, etc., don't have any stats on them. The dungeon was just for the pictures.
The neat thing though that I've learned is that you can dedicate 1-2 days to putting two levels of a dungeon together and then cover the table. I can then run a DIFFERENT group's campaign on the table top until my second gaming group shows up! It usually take a weekly (gaming 4 hours) gaming session about 4-6 weeks to go through two levels go my dungeon.
It's a shame we don't live near each other!
Very nice stuff! I highly approve. I greatly approve of the terrain/set pieces as well. I'm slowly working on something similar myself, but do not actually have that much disposable income just yet, so most of my terrain work is in foam instead of plaster (and most of it as large single pieces instead of multiple smaller pieces to assemble).
One day... one day.
I do need to update that site with more pics, but since we're in the sharing mood, those are some of the things I've done with foam. I'm looking forwards to the day when I have the money and time to upgrade to plaster and build stuff like what you have. :D
I'm still drooling over that room, but now I can hunt down the cool table to use. I really need to see about buying a house so I can craft my own gaming room. I probably would not mimic a tavern as I would something more dragon oriented myself, but its time to start saving for that table so I can use it myself.
This is the coolest thing ever. I would make it more tavern-esqe maybe put a kool tavern sign above door or a taxidermy dragons head.
Pirate! WOW! ahhh...WOW! You're REALLY talented with a board of foam. Your mountains look especially realistic! I ccn only image what you will end up making once a "pile of cash" drops in your lap from your first pirating haul!
SERIOUSLY speaking Pirate. Let stay in touch. you're really talented and as a new GM I'd like to learn a few of your GMing tricks!
